Stockport Community and Voluntary Services closes after council withdraws funding

Eight jobs lost as support organisation folds


Stockport Community and Voluntary Services closed last week with the loss of eight jobs.

Trustees decided to wind up the support organisation after Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council withdrew £127,000 of funding.

In a statement, the CVS said it was working with the council and others "to find homes for services and staff that will allow limited services to continue".

It is hoped that this will result in six staff being transferred to other organisations.

A council spokesman said core funding for the CVS through its main grants scheme ended in March but had been extended.
